Violet, as I stated in that boots thread, I'm very interested in the seeds you have for herbs and greens. Thank you!

Hans, I collected seeds from some kind of dock growing near Missoula. When i try to ID it, it doesn't quite seem like curly dock. So, curly dock seeds would be appreciated. Maybe i'll end up with two species of dock growing, maybe i'll just have more genetic diversity in one.

Wish list seeds for me:

I'm most excited for seeds from perennials: deciduous trees of ALL sorts, veg like asparagus, rhubarb, garlic chives, etc.

all kinds of culinary and medicinal herbs

greens: kale, mustard, chard, arugula, etc.

roots: turnips, radishes, beets, parsnips

flower seeds for beauty and diversity

The boots all love seeds! We are all excited to plant stuff on our individual plots. We don't have the best soil (yet), so we have to plant a lot of seeds to find the toughest ones.

If you send the seeds to paul, instead of boots c/o paul, then they will still get planted, but it will be at basecamp on the hugels, or for a PEP event.

Maybe "Pledge fund for bootcamp documentation"?
The other two seeds were hawthorn and honey locust.

Many vineyards will install purple martin houses. These are of a very specific design to keep out predators. The purple martins are very territorial.  They will chase other birds from the area. They eat bugs, not fruit or seeds.

After seeing how jujube (Ziziphus jujuba) was growing and coppicing in New Mexico, i would add it to the list.

Wood ear is called that because it grows on wood, not soil. So, definitely not that. Some random cup fungi. It doesn't have anything that makes it particularly distinct. It's not a bright color, and you haven't mentioned that it smells like anything special. Lacking those, I'd be wary of eating anything that was ID'd over the internet.  If you do a spore print and consult a few guide books, or may be able to find out what it is.

People love bulbs. If you give them away for free, I'm sure someone would be happy to dig them out for you.
Are we advertising a track without an instructor lined up?  I think that will turn out poorly?
